Too much drama trying to find a place to hunt anymore. Selling everything and using the money to buy my kids video games. Really sad because they really enjoyed hunting.

That's a horrible idea. I'm about as broke as they come with 3 kids and would never ever sell all their guns for video games.

It breaks their heart not having a place. So I have to sell everything and move on so they don't have to look at their hunting stuff and not be able to use it.

There is always a way!!!! Heck, it might have to be late season , but they could shoot some doe or something at my lease later on. It's hard but we adapt and overcome the best we can. Good luck. I wouldn't sale all their stuff just yet. Have some faith bud.

Bad idea Marine. Looking at unused hunting stuff is not going to hurt the kids. Video games will.

I didn't want to mess with a lease so I rented 10 acres until I can buy it. It's not much but the kids love it and you can still hunt. Stay optimistic and something will come your way better than you were hoping for

Ya, after I posted looking, I read how many other are as well. So I said to heck with it. Need to move to a state that allows more public hunting!

There are lots of other websites to that offer leases. Just do a google search for hunting leases in Texas.

uhhhh. You can do public land hunts.. Kid friendly at least to get out in the open. go during the afternoon of the week and not many people at all. This sounds like a sad attempt to get to use someone's land. Sorry but I am not buying it.

You can buy whatever you want. Truth of the matter is, finding a kid / family friendly place to hunt is very difficult. You are not very smart telling me to take kids public land hunting during the week, what about school? I have also heard the horror stories of the weekends on public land, no way will my I subject my kids to that.

I have no dog in this fight, so to speak, but I bet you already know whether video games vs getting to hunt again some time compares. Many folks in the same boat as you, nothing new. Have you thought about a once a year out of state hunting trip, like elk in Colorado if they are old enough? Assuming your kids are very young, since you're considering VG. I guess I am a bit surprised that a man that made it through BOOT and continued on would give up? May be time to "adapt and overcome" confused2

BTW, I have hunted public before and after the 1st or second weekend it was quite dead as far as hunters go. I hunted Corps land around lakes, mainly around lake whitney. A lot of deer and some thick stuff, also a lot of turkey back then. I think now you have to get a day permit from the corps office IDK.

Don't give up, teach those kids perseverance and patience. I had a cousin that was in the corp, a Marine Gunner iirc, he said marines never quit, is this true?

Afternoon hunts... Also I have been hunting public land for years and it is not as people say, by now all the public land areas are thinning out with people. Urban legend... There are plenty of ways to get around this and get a place to go.. Wish you the best of luck.
